Putting it in park City tries to recover parking funds BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS A pot of money to alleviate parking problems in La Jolla has two decades of history, and Promote La Jolla’s alleged mishandling of $65,323 of those funds has brought the issue back into the foreground. The city is suing Promote La Jolla — the former manager of the Village’s Business Improvement District — to recover $65,323 earmarked for parking, which was seized by a bank when Promote La Jolla defaulted on a loan. The city wants to return the money to its rightful place — the La Jolla Parking & Transportation Fund — created in the 1990s from developers’ fees paid to mitigate congestion their projects would bring. Developers had paid into the fund throughout the ’70s and ’80s. Today, the city is sitting on approximately $300,000 in the transportation fund, waiting for the Village to initiate ideas to use the money to alleviate its parking problems. In the meantime, the city wants to recover the money Promote La Jolla allegedly squandered.

“Things need to settle down before people have an interest in revisiting [the parking problem].” JOE LA CAVA La Jolla Coastal Access & Parking Board The discussion surrounding the transportation fund was derailed by controversy over paid parking and the downfall of Promote La Jolla, according to Joe La Cava, president of the Coastal Access & Parking Board, formed to manage the funds in 2004. “Things need to settle down before people have an interest in revisiting it,” La Cava said, adding there aren’t as many cars in the Village with the economic downturn. “Right now there doesn’t seem to be much motivation. You have to let the problem build-up to create a sense of urgency.” In the past eight years, the Coastal Access & Parking Board has used the transportation fund to encourage employees to ride the bus to La Jolla or to park in the underground parking garages. The board purchased monthly bus and parking passes and sold them to employees at a discount. In the late 1990s, the city’s Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) spent $10,000 from the fund to study the feasibility of establishing a park-and-ride for La Jolla, shuttling visitors from a remote lot to the Village. The study showed the idea was not feasible, said Martin Mosier, a member of the board at the time. “The study said if MTS can’t make money on a bus, how can the coastal access board do it?” Mosier said. Mosier believes installing parking meters is the best solution to get employees’ cars off the streets, and the only way to guarantee a steady stream of income to subsidize other programs. “If all the parking spaces are free, then they will all be gone,” Martin said. “The only way to do SEE PARKING, Page 4

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS • La Jolla teenager Eric Gunderson, who balances homework while racing automobiles, has qualified for the national championships scheduled for October in Langley, Va. His strong finishes, including a third place in one main event at Las Vegas Speedway, paved the way. Driving a Legends automobile, he’ll be representing a team with bases in Texas and North Carolina. He will debut a new car next weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. Gunderson is an honors student at La Jolla High School. • La Jolla resident Patricia Thompson won her choice of $1,000 or a Southwest Airlines gift certificate in the second early drawing of the Ronald McDonald House Dream House Raffle. Thompson is still in the running to win the grand prize on June 12: a $1.8 million dream home or $1.5 million in cash. • Andy Hill, a La Jolla High School sophomore, has launched a successful iPad app called “iscrawl,” a note-taking program that allows people to use their finger as a pencil to take notes or draw sketches. Hill spent six days in New York last summer learning how to write code for the device, which was released to the public on April 3. He has consistently demonstrated his aptitude for computer science; he has already completed the most advanced computer classes offered by LJHS, and he is part of the team from the school that recently won Mayor Sander’s Cyber Cup, a competition designed to identify students who have developed the ability to find and repair vulnerabilities in computer systems. • Faculty, staff and alumni of the University of California, San Diego Shiley Eye Center have set up a fund to name a new microsurgical practice lab after alumnus Lamont Ericson, MD.

Ericson completed his ophthalmology residency at the center in 1996 and stayed closely connected to the program even after establishing his own thriving practice in Utah. He died of pancreatic cancer in 2007. • A team from Crown Point Clippers, lead by owner David Hingeley, recently donated several days of labor to a beautification project at La Jolla High School. The landscape crew trimmed, laced and groomed large eucalyptus, pine and ficus trees to reduce safety hazards and improve the appearance of the campus. Hingeley, who is also a full-time fire fighter for the city of Coronado, said the project is close to his heart because his father and uncles attended La Jolla High. • La Jolla Girl Scout Troop 3377 recently hosted a collection drive and movie night to support the Spay Neuter Action Project.

NEWS Two suffer cardiac arrest at half marathon Two men suffered heart attacks within minutes of each other during the La Jolla Half Marathon last Sunday, April 25. The first man, in his mid-50s, dropped to the ground at the water station near the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club around 9:50 a.m., said Maurice Luque, spokesman for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Someone performed CPR on him and he was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital. Less than 10 minutes later, another man suffered cardiac arrest near Spindrift Drive and Princess Street in La Jolla Shores, said Luque, who was unsure of the man’s age. Five other people were treated for race-related injuries, Luque said. Nearly 6,500 runners turned out for the 29th annual half-marathon on Sunday. Twenty-three-year-old Sergio Gonzalez of Oceanside won the Del Mar to La Jolla race in one hour, nine minutes and 48 seconds. In the women’s division, 32year-old Jessica Goertz took first place in one hour, 25 minutes and 6 seconds.

Preserving or hindering a way of life? Coastal neighbors fret over building’s conversion BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS Plans to convert an underused office building on Prospect Street — formerly part of the old Scripps Hospital — into a care facility for the memory-impaired has rallied next-door neighbors, who say they see their quality of life slipping away. The city’s Planning Commission, meanwhile, wants the developer and neighbors to hash out their differences and to come up with a set of conditions everyone can live with — a goal that hasn’t happened so far. Jeff Lubin, who has owned the property for the last five years, plans to convert the building at 484 Prospect St. into a facility for 56 high-functioning residents with memory problems. No medical care will be provided onsite. North-

star Senior Living would operate the facility, if approved. The Planning Commission heard both sides argue their case April 22 and asked the parties to return April 29 with a list of agreed-upon conditions. “I believe you want to develop a site that will make you a good neighbor, and it sounds like this conversation needs to continue,” Planning Commissioner Dennis Otsuji told the Lubin. It doesn’t appear the developer and condominium neighbors were able to agree on many conditions, however, despite an eleventh-hour meeting on April 27 and countless prior meetings. The developer agreed to no smoking on the premises, and agreed to mitigate odors from its commercial kitchen, according to attorney Julie Hamilton, who represents the homeowners.

“We don’t have a whole lot of agreement right now,” Hamilton said. The La Jolla Community Planning Association — the community’s official planning advisory board — had deadlocked on the project and sent a “no recommendation” to the Planning Commission. The City Attorney’s Office told the Planning Commission that it couldn’t use the elderly population as a reason to deny the project. Seniors are a protected class, according to the City Attorney’s Office.

B.I.G. creates fire pits survey BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS An active group of volleyball players is rallying awareness about the city’s plan to haul away the beach fire pits the city can no longer afford to maintain. The San Diego Beach Improvement Group (B.I.G.) plans to survey 100,000 people in San Diego, as well as tourists from other cities, by May 20 to determine if the public supports the fire pits. B.I.G. hopes supporters will donate money to maintain the fire pits since the city dropped the program from its 2010-11 budget. B.I.G. Executive Director Laura Hendrickson said someone had to take the bull by the horns on the issue. “I’m not attached to the outcome,” Hendrickson said. “I just want to put it out there and see what happens.” Those interested may fill out the survey at sandiegobig.org. If the community shows support for the beach fire pits, B.I.G. aims to raise $120,000 to maintain them for the next fiscal year. It costs the city $120,500 annually to maintain the fire pits since two full-time employees are required to clear ash and debris from the cement blocks with a front loader and dump truck, according to the city’s Fire Pit Program website. The city set up the website to raise private funds to maintain the fire pits next year, and the site has garnered $2,576 so far. B.I.G.’s overall mission is to support beach amenities important to the public. The group began its philanthropy in 1996 with the desire to care for the South Mission Beach basketball and volleyball courts. Since 2002, B.I.G. has spent an esti-

The city’s Park and Recreation Department would not permit the foundation to finance only the La Jolla Shores fire pits because the money has to go into a fund to maintain the 186 fire pits citywide, according to Erin Demorest, spokeswoman for District 1 Councilmember Sherri Lightner.

In 1997, B.I.G. resurfaced the South Mission basketball court and hoops at a total cost of $8,300. Hendrickson formed B.I.G. into an official non-profit in 2007. Recently, BIG surveyed Mission Beach residents to find out whether the community wanted more bike racks, and received a 50-50 response, Hendrickson said.

At 77, Viti brings energy, vitality to Village BY ADRIANE TILLMAN | VILLAGE NEWS Esther Viti carries three business cards. One depicts three styles of benches for the Village’s bench dedication program. Another card advertises the La Jolla Town Council and its palm tree logo. Her personal business card is mauvecolored with a lady’s hat hovering above her name. Viti is tremendously energetic for her 77 years of age. She was in a coma for 14 days two years ago, but her ailment isn’t apparent in her authoritative voice and “can do” attitude. Viti has garnered three nicknames for herself in the 22 years she’s lived in La Jolla. “They call me the ‘Hat Lady,’ ‘Bench Lady’ and ‘Trash Lady,’” Viti said. She earned her latest moniker five years ago for assuming the reins of the Town Council’s street cleanups. Viti now organizes monthly cleanups for the Village — the second Saturday of each month — as chair of the Nell Carpenter Beautification Committee. “People are willing to do it. They just need a leader,” Viti said. Viti’s style for spreading the word about the cleanups is to “bolt up” during public comment at community meetings and through e-mails to past volunteers. One volunteer asked to clean La Jolla’s streets for her 20 hours of court-appointed community service, which Viti agreed to and organized. Viti is looking for four others, like that volunteer, who need community service hours. Cleaning the streets is not Viti’s “thing,” but she said she’s so structured and organized she could manage anything with gusto. Viti began coordinating the bench program in the late 1990s and she continues to lead lead it today. Locals can pay $5,000 to dedic a t e a b e n c h t o a l ove d o n e w i t h a plaque. Viti is no longer taking names for benches along the coast, but space is still available in the Village.

Esther Viti is among the Village’s most dedicated volunteers, organizing community cleanups and coordinating the installation of benches dedicated to the loved ones of residents. ADRIANE TILLMAN | Village News

Windansea’s ocean viewing grew from four coastal benches to 12 under her watch. She headed the installation of more than 35 benches in total in the Village. Viti coordinates each step of the process — from helping locals choose a bench to contracting the services. During the concrete pouring at Windansea, Viti guarded benches from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. from delinquents wishing to leave their initials. “[The city] doesn’t have to wonder what’s being done,” Viti said. “They know Esther has taken care of it.” “A goodwill ambassador” is how past Town Council president Paul Kennerson describes Viti. Kenner-

son had asked Viti to coordinate the bench program for the Town Council in the late 1990s. “Underneath Esther is a lot of very decent prudence and accommodation of various interests,” Kennerson said. “She’s very keen on that … the prime thing on the benches is that everyone wants one and wants it now and not everyone can have a bench and have it now.” Viti generated controversy in the Village two years ago, however, when she suggested volunteers sit on the benches to prevent the homeless from occupying them. Kennerson said he hadn’t agreed with Viti’s method for deterring the homeless.

Viti’s final business card is her personal touch. She loves hats and is rarely seen without one. She favors high-end designers. She always dresses like she’s heading to a luncheon, meaning she doesn’t wear jeans or slacks. “I hear others say, ‘I wear a hat too,’ but when I see their hat, it’s not like my hat. My hat is a showpiece,” Viti said. Viti dons another sort of hat for her volunteer work with the city’s Neighborhood Code Compliance Department — for which she doesn’t carry a business card. Instead, Viti carries a digital camera, a badge and a letter from the department. She responds to concerns from the community about issues like trash bins and A-frame signs in the public right-of-way. She promptly strolls into businesses to inform owners of their violations and to straighten out the situation. “I’m the eyes and ears for code enforcement,” Viti said. Working hard — with or without pay — is a way of life for Viti. Her parents immigrated to Chicago from Italy in the 1920s, and Viti was the sixth of nine children. As a 10-year-old, Viti worked alongside her father in the insurance business after school and on Saturdays. She rose early each morning to sing at 7 a.m. Mass. She often found herself taking charge — or being put in charge — of school and church projects. Viti later moved to Phoenix, raised six children, worked for an insurance company and volunteered for a weekend shift at the hospital each month. She suffered with a bout of rare cancer in her 30s, shortly after she had her sixth child, but rebounded quickly. Nowadays, Viti plans to sell long-term care insurance policies — a policy that has provided Viti with a home assistant since her coma left her with ailments. The motivation for volunteering is straightforward for Viti. “Self satisfaction. That’s what it’s all about,” Viti said. “I’m fulfilled personally.” For more information about the monthly cleanups or the bench program, contact call (619) 742-1373.

OPINION

THURSDAY · APRIL 29, 2010 LA JOLLA VILLAGE NEWS

GUEST EDITORIAL BY MAYOR JERRY SANDERS One of the most basic jobs of city government is making sure the streets are smooth and safe. Earlier this month, we began what might be the largest streets repaving project in San Diego history. We will give a complete makeover to 134 miles of the city’s most damaged streets — more than 1,000 city blocks. With this $47 million project, the city will perform asphalt resurfacing on nearly as many miles of streets as it did in the previous eight fiscal years combined. It should go without saying that this project will make the city a nicer, more livable place. But it also makes financial sense. The worse condition the street, the more money to fix it. So, postponing this work would mean paying more money in the long run. And in this economy, we’re also getting that work done at a bargain price. Many of you are all too familiar with this community’s axle-shaking, teethrattling roads — La Jolla Village Drive, for example. The list goes on and on. One resident recently joked that the only vehicle equipped to handle the hazards of Mira Mesa Boulevard would be a tank. The condition of many of these streets is an embarrassment and a public-safety hazard. They also have an impact on a neighborhood’s basic quality of life. Wellmaintained streets say a lot about a city’s sense of civic pride. Several decades ago,

Mayor Jerry Sanders

a sociologist theorized that making small fixes in a neighborhood — cleaning up litter, fixing sidewalk cracks, repairing broken windows — is the best way to make sure that neighborhood won’t deteriorate. Sociologists call this “the broken window theory,” and it’s a good guiding principle for a mayor of any city, large or small. If everything goes according to plan, all the streets listed above, and hundreds of others, will be repaved with asphalt by the summer of 2011. In addition to these streets, we will be performing slurry-seal resurfacing of an additional 147 miles of roads. That, too, is a figure that might be unprecedented in city history. A complete list of these streets can be found on the city’s website, www.sandiego.gov. We like to call San Diego America’s Finest City. This work will help make sure our city lives up to its title.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

America was not founded on the principles of a welfare state I am so angry. I hate what this country has become. I am no longer proud to be born, raised and a current business person here. That statement does not come easy, but it does come from the heart. I also would be ashamed to try to explain to the founding fathers of this country what we as citizens have let the politicians turn it into! Why don’t you open the door to the entire world and give them free money, as much as they want until the country simply runs out. Then borrow more and hand that out too! Too extreme you say? HA! You might as well do it fast and get it over with rather than this slow death we as a country are suffering at your hands while we turn in a poor, broke and nonproductive socialist — then a communist state. I feel that our country’s finances have been mismanaged for years. But I know that there are many, many more people that feel as I do. You, the Congress, Senate and the president have done a terrible job when it comes to protecting the money of the taxpayer. Furthermore, I feel that the United States of America was NOT founded on the principles of a welfare state like you want. A quote attributed to Margaret Thatcher goes along the lines of, “The

problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money [to spend].” What’s the remedy you say? Start with this: Please fire all government employees and replace them with independent contractors. There is little incentive in government to save more. They just want to save their budget! Next, immediately resign from your office and ask all in the Senate, Congress and president to resign with you. Before you go, legalize and tax gambling, drugs and prostitution. Why are we losing lives, limbs and assets to what humans will NEVER stop doing? Stop the insanity. Use the newfound revenue for rehab of drug and alcohol users and fund a program to help the homeless. People in the United States have rights. Government was granted limited authority by the people by way of the Constitution. Not rights! But government has over-stepped its limited authority. This current Federal, state and local government is an ugly animal that gorges itself on the dwindling prosperity of a once great nation. P.S. I’m against the health bill. Voting YES on that bill like you did woke “the sleeping giant.”

GUEST COMMENTARY

The message is clear: Spay or neuter your pet BY ANN POLLOCK | CHIHUAHUA RESCUE OF SAN DIEGO Per stats from Southern California counties, over 500 perfectly healthy young dogs were euthanized last week due to overcrowding at the shelters. The myths of “My dog needs to go through one heat,” “My children need to see puppies being born” or “I can always find good homes for the puppies” are just a ridiculous excuse when so many animals are being euthanized. Simple arithmetic illustrates how “just one litter” contributes to the mass killing: Two dogs breed. Six offspring are born. The six offspring reproduce within one year and are responsible for six offspring each. At the end of 10 years just one unaltered dog can be responsible for 4,372 births. What can YOU do to stop this suffering? Spay or neuter your pet. Spaying a female dog can lessen the chance of mammary tumors, or loss of bladder control, the mess of bleeding while in heat or being hit by a car during mating season when a dog will “break free” to find another dog to mate with. Neutering of your male dog will lessen the chance of prostrate cancer, and also being hit by a car. Males can actually smell a female in heat over a mile away and will dig out or jump over to get to the source of the smell. After they are neutered they are less apt to be in fights with other dogs and will not be markers when in your home. Rescues are asked time and time again to take dogs that have been brought to the ER with broken bones or severe cuts and bruises due to them being hit by a car and the owner not being able to afford the medical care needed. In most cases the dog is not altered. We, as the responsible humans, need to realize that this horrible cycle has to stop. Spay or neuter your pet. When you look at the classified ads in your local newspaper you will see ads for puppies. When you purchase one of these dogs you are only promoting more breeding of animals by people too greedy to have their pets altered. If you want a puppy, do your research — find a reputable breeder who gives you info on the breed. Most won’t ship dogs and will have a contract for altering and are available for questions down the line. Over 50 percent of the dogs in shelters are purebreds. When people are spending over $1,000 on a “designer” dog, which is basically what used to be called “mutts,” the so-called breeders just keep supplying. Sick puppies are brought across the border and people actually buy them

out of trunks of cars. Instead of buying from these people, you should be alerting the County Animal Control about where they are. There are many low-cost spay and neuter options. Ask your local shelter, call a rescue to see if they have info, don’t use the excuse you can’t afford it. There are options. Your tax dollars are paying to house and then euthanize these animals created because of unaltered pets. Be a responsible owner and do the right thing. Spay or neuter your pet.

Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego is a 501 3c non profit group, with under 10 unpaid volunteers. Over the last 10 years we have had an average of 90 rescue dogs placed into forever homes each year on a budget of less than $25,000. All dogs are altered, have shots, have microchipped and are kept in a cagefree home environment with our foster volunteers until placed. We get our dogs from owner turn-ins and shelter medical cases. For information call (858) 277-3557.

Speed keys Bishop’s Alfredo Corral both on and off track BY LEE CORNELL | VILLAGE NEWS

FIRST IN THE HALF —

Two runners emerged from the pack to win their respective divisions in the 29th annual La Jolla Half Marathon on April 25, which involved racing from Del Mar to La Jolla Cove. Above, La Jolla Half Marathon men’s champion was Sergio Gonzalez, 23, from Oceanside. He finished far ahead of the pack with a time of 1:09:48. La Jolla Half Marathon women’s victor was Jessica Goertz, 32, from San Diego. She finished with a time of 1:25:08. DON BALCH | Village News

Unlike many teenagers, Alfredo Corral likes to do everything fast. If the senior track star at The Bishop’s School has something to do, he wants to get it done right away — a trait that translates well on the track. “I run as hard as I can,” Corral said. “I do all my homework as fast as I can and I study as much as I can.” Corral has already used his blazing speed this season to set a new school record in the 400-meter dash. With a time of 48.79 seconds at the Arcadia Invitational in April, he broke a Bishop’s mark that had stood for nearly 10 years. “It was surprising because I wasn’t expecting to do it so early in the season,” Corral said. Breaking the record marked a defining moment in the track star’s tenure at Bishop’s. “He was so happy,” track team co-head coach Jessica Mercado said. “He wanted to leave (Bishop’s) and graduate having broken the record.” Besides being one of the best runners at Bishop’s, Corral has also emerged as a leader of the track team. He has been known to lend a helping hand to underclassmen and is the first to encourage teammates whenever the coaches are having a hard time getting the squad to keep pushing on. “He helps me at practice,” Mercado said. “When one kid won’t go hard he will notice and get on them and he also leads by example.” Corral is also a fast thinker, and the combination of his athletic abilities and work in the classroom has earned him a place at Stanford University, where he will begin as a freshman in the fall. He is leaning toward

studying economics at the prestigious school. The ambitious Corral said his relentless drive comes from his parents, who instilled in him at a very early age the drive to always work hard. “All that hard work I’ve done has paid off,” Corral said. Although his excellent grades and high SAT scores are what got him into Stanford, Corral will also be competing for the school’s nationally-touted track team. It will be a big change from the friendly confines of Bishop’s, but Corral is up for the challenge. Before he turns his focus to higher learn-

ing, Corral has some unfinished business he would like to accomplish in his senior year. His primary goal is to qualify for the CIF State Championships in June. Last year he finished agonizingly close but fell just short of the cutoff — and that was all the motivation this upstart needed to push harder than ever in training for the track season. “From day one he has always worked hard,” Mercado said. “He gives 110 percent in everything we do and every workout.” With a big chunk of the season still to go, Corral hopes to top his school record again. With his work ethic and positive outlook, that seems like a strong likelihood.

BUSINESSbriefs Copy Cove celebrates 30 years Copy Cove, located at 701 Pearl St., celebrated 30 years of business on April 15, marking the anniversary with free cake and coffee for customers. Owners Munira and Mohammed Usman and Mohammed’s father, Usman Utanwala, opened the store with one Xerox machine in 1980, and the store has since expanded its services to offer fourcolor printing, business cards, stationery, engineering copies, wide-format digital color posters and inhouse graphic design. The store is currently managed by the Usman’s son, Sal, who has worked in the family business for more than 20 years.

The Springs gets new owner As of April 1, The Springs at Pacific Regent La Jolla, a retirement community at 3884 Nobel Drive, is being operated by Watermark Retirement Communities, Inc. The facility had previously been operated by Sunrise Senior Living, which purchased the facility in 2005. Watermark now runs 26 retirement communities and three home health agencies in 16 states.

Car detailing goes green La Jolla-based automotive detailer CARBONita Detail, which opened in January, is using biodegradable products and eco-friendly practices to clean and recondition their customers’ cars. The business is particularly careful about water consumption, while many detailers use gallons of water for a full car detail, CARBONita needs only a pint of water for most of its services. The lower level of water usage yields less run-off and thus less pollution to natural water sources. The shop offers mobile detailing at homes and offices throughout La Jolla and surrounding areas. For more information, call (858) 361-4061 or visit carbonitadetail.com.

BY MEAGHAN CLARK | VILLAGE NEWS European designs have long been accenting the homes of the rich and famous. In La Jolla, the European flavors of French architecture and home decorating can be found at La Maisonnette, a boutique and trading company that has been on Girard since 2001. “We’re dealing with a crowd that’s sophisticated,” owner Portia Marque said. France’s sophisticate meshes nicely with the well-traveled tourist or La Jolla local, she said, as timeless pieces retain a sense of integrity for all sorts of patrons. La Maisonnette combines Southern California finesse and classic European flavors in its shop where one-of-a-kind lamp shades and bases line the walls, 18th century soaps imported from France fill every crevice and aromas of perfumes inspired by the French Riviera fill the room. The venue is a European haven for collectors and home owners alike. Call her the Julia Child of home decorating — French connoisseur Portia has created a French paradise within her seaside home of La Jolla. Just a decade ago this American, who lived in France for 25 years, brought her passion home with her along with husband and French native Jean. Now, the traveling trader brings back her former European lifestyle to the shop, searching for products unfamiliar to American markets that she loved while abroad. “We want to share [these items] with people,” Portia said, adding that at first it was difficult to get

Some art is pretty. Some art is beautiful, intricate and detailed. Some art took countless hours to perfect. Other art may not be so beautiful, elaborate or technically skillful but it has social content. It says something about society and culture and it makes you think. The current show at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Art Gallery, which opened on April 8 and runs through May 15, is just such an example of the latter. Titled “Transurbanic: Art Emotions and Some City Trances,” this is a collection of contemporary socially-inspired Mexican art brought to UCSD by Guillermo Santamaria, the chief curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MuCA) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City, which is the largest public institution in Mexico dedicated to contemporary art. The art exhibited at this show is not high art from the Mexican tradition nor colorful peasant folk crafts, but instead works that Santamaria calls, “Another Mexican art which is a vexation to the status quo.” The art work here is of “urban, social, and street concern and the product of a struggle to organize art and move it outside its hegemonic impositions.” Santamaria said. “These pieces are a reflection of the paradoxical reality of contemporary life in a Mexican city. They reflect on the crisis, daily melodrama, and the broken condition of a treacherous, isolated, often violent, tragic, and generally out of control existence, which is at once pathetic, paranoid, and hilarious…although they are from Mexico, these art works may reflect on individual existence in any city through out the modern world. They show how the promise of modernity — that we would all live in clean, safe, and utopian cities has failed.” Some of the art pieces to look for at this exhibit include, a large back cardboard ceiling hanging structure, wooden panels leaning against a wall, a circular hairy wall sculpture, a photo collection of a man attempting suicide, a collection of UFO photos, a small sculpture of a frog canon, an Escher-like painting of a Mexican building, and a video of the mouths of missing Mexican children. The art at this exhibit is not “eye candy.” It requires you think and the challenge is to link the SEE ART, Page 15

Mozartkugeln and the 25th Kyoto Prize Starry, starry nights

with Vincent Andrunas Mainly Mozart — those bi-national purveyors of fine music and musical education —have traditionally held elegant black-tie fundraising galas, frequently featuring individual table décor by top designers and artists. But with the flagging economy, their executive director, Nancy Laturno Bojanic, decided to restructure the annual event. Instead of a very formal Saturday night affair, it became a relaxed Sunday afternoon party tied closely to Wolfgang

Amadeus Mozart and his Salzburg, Austria, birthplace. It was still at the Westgate Hotel, Mainly Mozart’s partner since its 1989 beginnings — the perfect place for an Austrian-themed soirée. The dress was “cocktail or Austrian attire,” and everything began at 4 p.m. Guests enjoyed champagne and a Viennese waltz demonstration in the Grand Lobby, with dancing couples in full Austrian period attire. Upstairs, they found hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and a marionette demonstration. Four separate concerts in the Versailles Room featured either Robert Thies on piano or Jun Iwasaki on violin with Grace Fong at the piano. Elsewhere, guests witnessed a demonstration of Mozartkugeln, a hand-made confection originating in 1890s Salzburg. A ball of pistachio marzipan, covered in a layer of nougat, is dunked in dark chocolate, cooled and wrapped in silver foil. (They’re irresistible!) A buffet dinner in the Fontainebleau Room (including fabu-

lous authentic wienerschnitzel, which bears not the slightest resemblance to what’s sold at American fast-food restaurants) completed the very successful evening. ••• The Kyoto Prize is a very prestigious international award, established in 1984 by Kyocera Corporation founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori. Awarded each November in Japan, half the laureates have been American. Awardees receive academic honors, a gold medal and a cash gift of 50 million yen (about $550,000). It’s Japan’s highest private award for global achievement. The three-day Kyoto Prize Symposium, held each April in San Diego, allows the honorees to present their accomplishments to an international audience. It starts with a black-tie gala celebration, held this year at the Marriott San Diego Hotel and Marina. There, basic sciences laureates Peter and Rosemary Grant, the first married couple to

receive the prize, were introduced. Their research has shown that natural selection, the fundamental tenet of evolution, occurs all around us — even as we watch. Dr. Isamu Akasaki was the laureate for advanced technology, for his development of the blue LED and blue laser diode. Each awardee gave a short address, but Maestro Pierre Boulez, the arts and philosophy laureate, couldn’t attend because European air traffic was grounded due to the Icelandic volcano. Gala co-chairs were Robert Horsman, Masaaki Tanaka and Peter Farrell, while Irwin Jacobs and Conrad Prebys served as honorary chairs, and Ian Campbell was the able emcee.

It is a heartfelt journey that reflects the survivor in everyone; representing the joy, the trials and tribulations, the love, and the passion to follow ones dreams — all rooted in the necessity of family representing the power to rise from tragedy with reason, purpose and integrity. Filled with classic songs by Dean Pitchford, Tom Snow and Kenny Loggins, this musical jukebox brings out an energy and drive like no other musical. “Let’s Hear It For the Boy,” “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out for a Hero” and the explosive title song “Footloose” are just a few of the iconic songs brought to life in this dance driven piece. These energetic and moving songs, each a pop single in their own right, are woven dramatically in a dynamic and entertaining

The book acts like a video game in that it’s accessible, active and can be obsessive. It’s brain stimulation in analytical reasoning and problem solving. “The overall point is to introduce children to science fiction concepts in a fun way,” Shiga said. Shiga was teaching a college class on comic books as literature 13 years ago when he decided to follow the footsteps of comic-book icon Adrian Tomine. “If he can do it, why not me?” Shiga asked himself one day. So, Shiga wrote the comic book, photocopied it and sold it to bookstores. “The advantage to the medium is that it’s really accessible to the average

person,” Shiga said. “All you need is pen and paper and a photocopy machine.” Ten years later, Shiga’s work caught a publisher’s eye. Shiga has since authored 20 comic books, invented three board games, two card tricks, the greedy mug and bus clock.

A special art lecture was held April 20 at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in conjunction with the exhibit “Verdi’s Aida Through the Eyes of Zandra Rhodes” in the main and rotunda galleries. During the lecture, Rhodes took the audience through her journey in designing for “Aida.” She said that her inspiration for the opera began with her trip to Egypt. She explained that she loved the Egyptian use of eyes in art and incorporated that in her designs along with the turquoise, oranges and gold colors, and the bold jewelry. Another influence was the pleated dresses of the pharaohs. Rhodes talked about the process of buying saris and making the pleats. One of the biggest challenges was to make the wigs so they weren’t too heavy for the wearer. During the presentation, Rhodes showed slides of her sketches and then pictures of the actual sets and costumes on the stage. There are many reasons why the sets and costumes may vary from the original sketch, which may be due to the size of the actor or due to monetary reasons. This was a very entertaining lecture and it was very uplifting to hear all the behind thescenes stories in the making of the Egyptian-inspired opera. The exhibit is a wonderful collection of her sketchbooks, costume drawings and costumes she created for Verdi’s Zandra Rhodes and husband Salah Hasopera “Aida.” sanein at a special lecture in the She was originally commissioned by Athenaeum Music and Arts Library.

On Saturday evening, the final film was screened on a giant blow-up screen in the park. Two of the directors, George Manzanilla and Janet Pytowski, were there to talk to the audience. Manzanilla’s film was “Summer Fashion,” featuring Billabong fashions, filmed in Bali and Santa Monica. Pytowski is the owner of a video production company and has one of the largest fashion archives in the world. She screened “Style is Eternal,” the first film from the company’s archives, which date from 1950 to the present. The closing night party wrapped up at the Bull and Bear.
